Plant Relocation

CSM Group’s plant relocation services supervise and verify asset relocation, minimizes production downtime, and enhances employee satisfaction. With a delivery team of relocation professionals that are experienced in food-safe, clean-built, and GMP-built environments, no relocation of assets is too large for us to handle.

We work with clients to define planning needs and identify the technical considerations, occupancy requirements, and develop a move schedule. This detailed master move schedule includes complicated move sequences and corresponds with design and construction activities and milestones.

Whether your plant relocation involves a single piece of equipment or multiple phases for a full facility relocation, we’ll work with you to develop a customized turnkey move plan that fits your needs. As your move management partner, we will reduce the downtime, cost, risk, and complexity associated with your move.

Testimonials

  • CSM Group was an integral part of our organization’s expansion in the west. Their ability to manage the packaging, move, and reinstallation of our equipment was key to the successful start-up of our new facility. I would not hesitate to recommend CSM Group to any organization that is looking for a smooth relocation of their assets; you will not be disappointed.

    Mike Roeder
    President/CEO • Fabri-Kal Corporation
  • CSM Group was a major factor in our successful relocation of production equipment from our Grand Rapids, MI plant to other existing facilities in our network. Their move management services were second to none; the use of tools like Bluebeam gave the contractors professional documents to bid against while keeping costs low compared to their competitors. I appreciated their attention to detail and thorough communication, as well as the management of the contractors that disconnected the equipment, provided custom protection/skidding, and shipping coordination.
